Autumn 2020 – Part 30 – Athabasca Blue – Jasper National Park

October 1, 2020

On our way back from our Valley of the Five Lakes hike, we just had to stop and admire the fine views of the Athabasca River.

After working for 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 3+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wanted me to do has been rewarding. While I still miss the social aspect of working with a team of great people, I have managed to keep in touch with many from my former team and I have many friends and family members who now fulfill this part of my life. Now that my Patty has retired, we are able to spend more time in pursuits and with people who are near and dear to us. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may not become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. I would very much enjoy sitting on the river bank, listening to the water, watching the kayaks, white water rafts and wild animals go by. It’s quite a beauty with the Rockies on the background! Thanks for sharing and have a good day, Allan. I hope all is well. We are embracing long and dark winter nights and slowly getting ready for Christmas. Ericeira is going to be Mrs Claus at the school play. Although we won’t be able to attend this year due to the pandemic restrictions, teachers are going to record the whole play for us to see. Have a good day. Aiva

    1. A nice place to sit and watch the water go by, for sure, Aiva. The elk would come and go and the squirrels would chatter as high above, the ravens soar. Great that Ericeira is Mrs. Claus and that the teacher has figured how to put the production together so you can watch. You must be so proud. I recall when my “little” ones were in plays and productions was always a good time seeing them put their own character into the art. Enjoy. Thanks for reading. Allan

  2. The Athabasca River is a true star of the rocks, it flows through such beautiful landscapes, taking on multiple forms, tumultuous or voluptuous, cascading or stretching, there are always beautiful angles around it.
